Quote of the week ... by gimleteye

PRESIDENTIAL HISTORIAN DOUGLAS BRINKLEY: Extremely juvenile. You know, I did my doctorate at Georgetown in US diplomatic history, and the first thing you learn when you study diplomacy is an American president or senator, congressperson doesn't diss their own country when they go abroad. That’s what Donald Trump has done on this trip. And this whole visit has been embarrassing. I mean, think about president of the United States coming to Europe -- Great Britain doesn't want Trump there. France doesn't want him. Only Poland took him. He now is in Germany, where he -- the Germans, only about eight percent of the German people like Donald Trump. You have massive protests, a lot of it aimed not just at the G20, but at Donald Trump himself. Our first lady is holed up in a hotel, and she's not able to go and meet the other wives of the G20. And meanwhile, you know Putin is going to be getting benefits out of this meeting with Trump. And here we have the president of the United States sending crazy tweets about [John] Podesta. It is not a good scenario. We are seeing the shrinking of American prestige in the world before our very eyes.

Blow back, big time.

Now we need to get this "News" in front of the blinders and in to the heads of his supporters.

Karma, you get what you put out!

Dorothy has pulled the curtain back, for the world to see.

Saw a similar shrinking under WBush. Obama got a Nobel Prize for NOT being Bush. Vegas odds must be high that the next Dem Prez also gets a Nobel. LMAO!

That would be Pense or Ryan. They are not Nobel prize material. But if they could just get us on a normal American track, I would be thankful. Otherwise, we have to wait until Democrats take control of Congress to clean up the mess. I am so tired of the continuous lies. Lying is a part of their family's culture and ethos. He is a liar and he has trained his children to be liars too. Strange people. I my lifetime have never interfaced with low-level people like them. It just goes to show you, having money is not everything. Character stands for a lot.

Yes because Obamacare and the Iran deal were truthful. The biggest truth was Benghazi.
